adelson. there was a great report done by the center for action fund. if mitt romney gets elected. $2.3 billion sheldon adelson saves over four years. that's just one guy. remember, corporation for public broadcasting $444 million. but $2.3 billion for sheldon adelson. that's not all. romney would get rid of the estate attacks. that will save sheldon adelson $8.9 billion. just for the sheldon adelson family, if romney is elected it will cost the american government over $11 billion. but you're worried about big bird? you're worried about big bird? now do you know that p bs, it only gets $22.3 million. so, how much would sheldon adelson's tax breaks fund corporation for public broadcast broadcasting corporation for public broadcasting? 25 years for just one person's tax breaks or pbs you could fund for nearly 500 years if you just take away the extra tax breaks sheldon adelson would get under the romney administration. you want to talk about priorities? that's mitt romney's priority. i'm going to take sesame street away from all the kids in the country. i'm going to take pbs away from

him at face value for a moment. small business truly gets a boost if you elect romney, you need some paychex. the company's growth is in the hands of small business expansion. obama bears take note. you might be tempted to short paychex on the democratic victory. but remember, you have to pay that bountiful dividend if you short the stock. along the same lines, romney claimed that obama's policies are causing an increase in the use of food stamps. >> the proof of that is one out of six people in poverty. the proof of that is we've gone from 32 million on food stamps to 47 million on food stamps. >> again, if you take romney at his word, you better dump family dollar and dollar general tomorrow. they have expanded aggressively into food to capture that gigantic increase of food stamp dollars. they've been using new freezer cases to bring food in. that's what was behind the breakout we saw the other day from family dollar's magnificent quarter. that big increase in the number of food stamp users might go away. much was made of this comment by romney -- >> i like pbs. i love big bird. i
economic data that also came into the market. but going back to the romney/obama matchup, the election is still a ways away. so could this be a buying opportunity for people who still think that healthcare reform will become a reality? > > absolutely. for those who are looking for a little pullback, and again, yesterday's move was not that great in the context of everything, but, we'll wait and see how big this will be if the romney stocks continue outperforming the obama stocks in the next week or so. so on any further dip, if you're a believer that the democrats will still hold the presidency, i think this may be the opportunity for people to jump into those names, and maybe if you're long some of the defense stocks and insurance stocks, use the rallies to maybe trim out of those if you are a little hesitant. or, if the next debate reverses and heads obama's way, then this thing is certainly not a done deal on either side. > > bottom line: you're making money as this is going up and down here. > > absolutely. as traders, we like this volatility kind of in a range-bound environment, s

winning a re-election versus romney, the challenger coming in and wing. and what happens is there is a divergence. health care in general tends to do okay if people think romney is going to be re-elected and that is overall. but health care really breaks down to the service providers like the hospitals. which would actually severely benefit quite a bit if obama care continued on as planned. but if we had someone like romney come and take over and you know do what he says to get rid of obama care the folks who provide service are certainly going to be adversely affected. the folks that provide insurance are going to be positively affected. we saw that effect today. it was very marked. >> susie: let's look at another sector because romney was talking a lot about how much he likes coal, both candidates mr. talking about energy independence and you look at how coal stocks did today, big gains there like arch coal, like alpha natural resources, is this a good place to put your money? >> well, i tell you this. it's early to be making bets on any sector and predicated against a

. >> so in terms of the elections, yes, governor romney is doing better because he had a better outcome in the debate. i think most people still recognize that he has a lot to do. remember, romney has to do two things. one, he has to convince that president obama has not delivered. second, he has to convince the american people he can deliver. so he has to do it both things. there's still some heavy sledding for him on both fronts. in terms of the market, i think that over the next few weeks and months we're basically going to be driven not only by the political process but whether we get data that confirms the handoff from central bank action to fundamentals will happen. otherwise, this wedge that the central bank have created between valuations of fundamentals cannot be sustained forever. fundamentals have got to start coming up towards valuations, otherwise valuations will come down. >> mohammed, thank you so much for joining us today. >> thank you, michelle. >> all right. we've got about 51 minutes before the closing bell. the nasdaq is lower by nearly 14 points. >> don't go anywher

mitt romney has hammered president obama about job growth. elect me, i can turn the economy around. but today the rationale for his entire campaign is crumbling. the new job numbers are out and unemployment has dropped to 7.8%. under 8% for the first time since president obama first came into office. that's progress on jobs and that's good for america. but it's absolutely demolishes a favorite romney talking point. >> three years later, unemployment is still above 8%. >> we've gone 41 months with unemployment above 8%. >> we've had 42 straight months with unemployment above 8%. >> still 8% with over 43 straight months. >> today, that talking point disintegrated and president obama has a strong record to campaign on. >> this morning we found out that the unemployment rate has fallen to the lowest level since i took office. but today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> now, governor romney issued a statement today saying, quote, this is not what a rea
the election. the problem is, when mitt romney specified that public television is something that he wanted to cut, it puts a face on something. he did get specific but what he was worried about all along is that if he got specific, then it gave the president something to target, which the president now effectively has and you've got lots of people saying, what about big bird? in fact, they were just saying, and what about elmo? and what about cookie monsters? so some of these specifics look like they might hurt mitt romney. >> well, he avoided the specifics on very serious things that affect americans. he won't be specific on medicare, he won't be specific on medicaid, he won't fill in the details on his tax plan but he got specific about a bird. erin, give me a break. dana, thanks for your time tonight. have a good weekend. >> you, too. >>> coming up, governor romney says he's completely wrong about the 47% he called victims. does anyone really buy this? >>> and breaking news out of ohio. it's a major victory in the fight of your voting rights.

, this election season, it is political. president obama says there is more to be done. governor romney says this is not what a real recovery looks like. the labor department reports the economy added a seasonally adjusted 114,000 jobs last month which brought down the jobless rate to an unexpected 7.8 percent. here is a look at the unemployment rate since 28 state. the gray area on the left is the president since the recession. the rate has not been this low sin the inauguration in january of 2009. of course, this could be a potential boost to the president's campaign. no incumbent since the great depression has been re-elected with unemployment above 8 percent. the president said the economy is moving forward and suggested governor romney's policies would spark another financial disaster. >> we made too much progress to return to the policies that led to the crisis in the first place. i cannot allow that to happen and i won't allow it. >>trace: governor romney downplayed the new jobs numbers. he wrote in a statement and i quote, "this is not what a real recovery looks like. we created fewe

elected. promises get things passed, so now mitt romney says i'm going to create 12 million jobs over four years. 250,000 jobs a month. a ridiculous claim and what does the obama campaign do because morning in america sounds better than evening in america, the obama campaign says there's that's a low bar. we can do that, too. >> briefly here, you mentioned the idea of a conspiracy theory. this is the white house trying to mix it up. you don't buy that at all. >> not a little bit. bureau of labor statistics is a geeky, wonky organization. i love their website. they just, they're data geeks. i spoke to the labor secretary again to be reassured that even she doesn't see them until the morning of. sometimes, the president's economic adviser gets them the night before because if it's a really bad number, that person can go to the person and say we need to inform the federal reserve chief, but generally speaking, that is not the case. this is, look, i suppose anything's possible. it could even be a calculation error, but it is remarkable that the minute the numbers turn against conservatives, ev
